BEACON TRANSCRIPT – Smart phones are by a now a day to day commodity. With 1.2 billion smart phones sold in 2014, we’ll have to wait for about a month to see 2015’s results. And since they are such a huge part of our lives, of course we want them working at 100% efficiency. In this regard we have software updates, and Huawei’s Honor 5X already received its first security update.
The phone hasn’t even shipped for worldwide deliveries yet, and the company showed that they actually have a lot in common with their newest product’s name by already respecting their promise and delivering the first security update.
Most companies aren’t really planning on releasing monthly security updates for their devices, despite Google’s suggestion that this happens, as well as Samsung’s following of their software provider’s suggestion.
HTC even went so far as to say that it’s very unrealistic.
The whole thing started a while back, as multiple hacking scandals put a lasting fingerprint on the security of internet and smartphone users worldwide.
It was then that Google promised monthly security updates for pretty much all their Android devices, and Samsung was very quick to oblige.
Huawei is one of the very few companies to so far keep their end of the bargain.
Their newest phone – the Huawei Honor 5X hasn’t even been shipped to America yet – shipping will begin on the 31st of January – and the first security update has already come out, ready to be installed as soon as the phones arrive at their destinations.
It’s kind of fitting that the company with the device called Honor is among the first to follow their given instructions.
Huawei officials went so far as to promise regular updates, although they might not be exactly monthly; regardless, for one of their first phones, they are doing a very good job.
If you’re interested in the company’s Huawei Honor 5X model, you can keep on reading below, as it is a very good phone for its price range, possibly even the best budget smart phone to date.
Definitely a mid-range device, the Honor 5X comes in at $199, and it offers a wide array of features rarely found in devices of its price range.
With a 5.5-inch a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor, 16 GB of internal storage, 2 GB of RAM, a 1080p display, a 13 MP rear camera, a 5 MP front camera and a 3000 mAh battery, the phone is most likely the best you can get in its price range.
